FreeBasic doesn't come with a built-in editor, so you will need to get an editor to write your programs. You can use any text-based editor. I use PSPad, there is also one built just for FB called FBIde. You can get it here:

http://www.fbide.freebasic.net/

Just install this, point it to fbc.exe, which is the compiler, and you are all set.

Go to the FB wiki. There are tutorials and documentation for the language.

I am currently writing a beginner's guide to FB, but it will be a couple months before it is out.
